THE WHin PARTY AND ITS PRINCIFLKS.-JOHN
-HELL'S OPINION OP KRElSOILERH.
The whig party -was founded so its founders
said in order
1st. lb estaUish a National Sank.
This object it has abandoned.
3d. lb establish a Eigh Protective Tariff".
This object it has abandoned.
3d. To distribute the surplus money in the Treasu

This object it has abandoned.
th. lb oppose the Sub-Treasury, by which our
Government manages its men moneys in paying its
own debts in its otm way.
This object it has abandoned.
Thus stand the old issues ! IIoic are the new
ones 7 lYhat are they ? What is wniGGEity 1
Do whlgs object to Gen. Pieecs's inaugural ad
dress, laying down the principles and doctrines of
his administration ? Not at all ! In no cpn
Vention of their party, in no Fpeech of their pub
lic men, do they attack thesu principles or doc
"trines. What, then, do they do ? What is -whio-
ceet i What is tne Dona wincu noias it logem
er! Is it, as in John Quikct Adams' time, "a
hatred of every man of purer principles than
" "themselves 1" They object to Gen. Pierce's ap
pointments ! To nothing else ! We repeat it !
To a dozen or two men appointed to office. To
nothing else ! Whiggery now is, abuse of a few
district attorneys and tide waiters, whose positions
it villifies and misrepresents. Such is the whigge
ry cf 1853 ! Of its old principles, nothing is left.
It is, and it is only, abuse and misrepresentation
of & few men.
1st. Whiggery assails the appointment of
States Rights men to office by Gen. Pieece.
2d. They charge that he has also appointed
These objections are urged in different sections.
-The first is urged mainly by northern whigs, and
the last by southern whigs. We notice, there
fore, only the last.
We contend that Gen. Pierce has appoint
ed no man to office who was a free-soiler at the
time of his appointment. There are some who
ones acted with the free-soilers, hut they pro
fessed to have repented of former errors and to
have renounced their free-soilism. They gave
- proof of their repentance and conversion by voting
for the Baltimore platform and for Franklin
Pierce, who stood upon it. Whigs charge that
this repentance was not sincere. That is all of
their charge. But how do they know this 1 They
believe all democrats to be hypocritical, and there
fore their charge needs proof. The people will
not take it for granted.
Now we charge that their oiro objection is hypo
critical. Because the whigs really have no objec
tion to the appointment of free-soiiers. They
sanction such appointments by their own party,
and it is therefore hypocritical in them to make
such an objection to Gen. Pierce. We mean
here to say that the whigleaders in Tennessee have
no objection to such appointmsnts. We prove it.
1st. Their President appointed Tom. Corwin,
Collanex and Ewtsg, to places in the cabinet,
and aot a whig paper or orator in Tennessee ob
jected to it.
2d. Their Senator, John Bell, voted for the
confirmation of these abolition and free-soil ap
pointments, and no member of their party here at
home brought him to task for doing so !
3d. But, more than this, every man in Tennes
see who voted for Scott showed that he himself
had no objection to the election of a man asPres
dent, brought out and nominated by free-soilers.
We prove this by Mr. Bell. He admitted the
charge in a speech at Nashville shortly before the
election. Gen. Scott himself had pledged him
self not to discriminate between whigs in making
appointments to office meaning that the free
soilers should have a fair division. And Mr. Bell,
in his speech to the whigs of Nashville on the
18th October, 1852, said :
"Yet. fellow citizens, continued ifx. B., I cannot
eay that I have been free from embsnassinent in
my course in relation to General Scott. It gave me
great pain, and still causes me the deepest concern,
that on tho question of the propriety of supporting
General Scott, a few of the ablest and most devoted
whigs of the State differed from me. I have the
greatest respect for the integrity and purity of their
motives, and have long had the greatest confidence
in theirgeneral sagacity and soundness of judgment.
The difference between them and me, I believe, may
be reduced to a single point. Setting aside all inter
ests of merely apartynature,andregarding.ectional
harmony and the preservation of the Constitution
and the" Union as the prominent object, however
sound and orthodox Gen Scott may be on the issues
growing out of slavery, they arc still of opinion
that, considering the elements of which the whig
party of the North is composed embracing some
of the mot prominent advocates and leaders of
freesoil and anti-slavery principles and sentiments,
-with & large number of followers, tliat it would le
safer and better for the true interests of the country
to decline any co-operation with such men in the
support of General Scott, and let the election go in
lavor ot tne uemocratic canaiaaie.
The3T contend l
that, to elect General Scott with such assistance,
would tend to strengthen and nourish their designs
and mischievous purposes in the North that they
would assume a more formidable aspect in future
from the protection and support which they would
draw from being regarded as part and parcel of a
whig administration and they insist that the best
remedy for the evil is to decline all further co-operation,
political or otherwise, with the freesoilers of
our oartv. I have shaped my course differently, on
the ground that, to reject or decline the suppo'rt of !

supported by the free soil whigs of the North, or 1
that he was preferred and chosen by them as their j
candidate in opposition to the favorite of the South, I
instead of weakening and repressing freesoil prin- j
ciples and influences, would onlyfurnish them with j
weapons and arguments to still further infect tho '
whole North with their mischievous sentiments." 1
Now here the reader will see the admission by
Mr. Bell that Gen. Scott was nominated by the
free-soilers against the candidate of tho South.
Yet the argument is made, that by uniting with
these free-soilers in the support of their candidate,
thesa free-soilers would be conciliated. Tho whigs
of Tennessee accepted aud followed the advice. i
They showed themselves willing to give the free-
Eoilcrs their favorite for President to conciliate them.
In the face of Gen. Scott's pledge not to discrimin
ate among whigs in makingappointments to office
in the face of Mr. Bell's admission that Gen. Scott
"srae the candidate of the free-soilers the whig pa
pers of Nashville supported Scott
What has brought their ronciliatiug disposition
to so sudden a pause Had Gen. Pierce really ap
pointed to office a man now a free soiler wliich he
has not one would think that men who, six months i
ago, were willing to give tho free-soilers a President
to conciliate them, could not now object to pur
chasing conciliation at the cost of a paltry district
Fiction, it is miserable faction the disposition
ciplesto cpn(oaduur. Itlum;'logether, a wretched
remnant of what-once was -a party professing a
1 creed, upon die sin"ln point of attacking the Presi-
' dential appointments; canngotfiingnt allfSr it
, ha5 no character to lose, that, wcro these charges as
true as they arc untrue, those who make Jhcm
would "only convict themselves of wanton and
j shameless hypocrisy, in denouncing in others what
they avowed!' practised themselves.
In the extract from Mr. Bell's speech, we
give our democratic friend all Ihe.ammunition they
will need to demolish the single point'made by
whiggery in this canvass. 1
THE DANGER OP BEING A 'iVllIC,
Col. JonN'SOX voted for tho nomination ofudge
White in 1S35, a3 "a better Jackson man;'' but he
never acted with the whig pany of Tennessee.
He wa3 among the earliest lo ftthom John Bell's
intrigue and to denounce it. Whether the voting
for Judge White's nomination in, Jg33 did or did
not make a whig of a man, wo. can judge as1
well as any body else. Certain i it is that the
White leaders vociferously denied that it could
have such an effect. Wc " assert," for the benefit
of the Yrtie Whig, that CoL Johnson never called j
himself a whig, and never acknowledged himself i
a'whig. lie abandoned the White party just as !
soon as he found that party preparing to go over to
whiggery. And thousands of the rhest democrats
of Tennessee did the samo thing. Quffe three-fourths J
of that portion of the present democratic party of
Tennessee who were then voters stbod with Col.
The conduct of Col. JoHNSoxin this matter re
quires no defence. We allude to tho matter only
lo mark the progress of public sentiment relative to
whiggery. It has been prophe'eied by shrewd
judges that whiggery could never rally agaili as a
national part3r. Some of the leaders of that party
now pronounce it dead. We have always believed
that the name of "whig" would become as odious
as tliat of "federalist" has already become. We
have appealed to ambitious young men not to at
tach themselves to a party which wa3 already
doomed and damned. Wc refer to this matter in
the True Whig by -waj- of illustration. Note it,
that suspicion of whiggery in 1835 L3 now brought
forward against CoL Johnson as a serious matter
by the True Whig. All that he did to make Km
a whig was to vote for Judge Whitf's nomination
as " a better Jackson man." But the True Whig;
seeing how odious whiggery has become, thinks
it can surely defeat him it it can mako him out to
have been once a whig 1 That the True Whig
supports Henry, who is a whig yet, is only one of
those inconsistencies inherent to whiggery. What
a confession this of the odiousness of whig princi
ples 1 A whig paper objecting to a man that he
was once a whig I
We beg the young men of our State to reflect
upon this. They are just starting out in life; and
what is there in whiggery to recompense them for
the sacrifice they must make by being whigs?
Doomed to straggle in a hopeless minority the
road to public honor blocked up to them why
should they be whigs? The penalty of working in
a minority is the least of the e viL For they see, by
Uiis charge against CoL Johnson, Uitt the whig
leaders themselves regard whiggery to be so full of
evil that the mere suspicion of it is held up by them
as mortal offeuce. Think of this, young men, and
start democrat, so that no " true whig," twenty
years from now, sliallbe able to blast your 'pros
pects for life by saying that you were " once a
THE CANDIDATES AT SPARTA.
The brief sketch of the debate at Sparta, which
wc have already published, detracts little from the
interest with which the longer account in our paper
to-day will be read. This account is from one of
the most intelligent and reliable democrats of our
acquaiatancc. The report is full and impartial; and
from it our readers will derive a very correct idea
of the issues discussed bv the candidates.
WITHDRAWAL OF MAJ. RARRY.
Wc have received the annexed letter from Mnj.
Barry, withdrawing from the canvass for Congress
in the liflh district This determination of Maj. B.
will be greatly regretted by the democracy of that
district, to whom Maj. Barry is well known as a
gentleman of fine talents and a radical democrat
AVc trust that our friends in that district will yet
have a candidate in the field.
Nashville, June 5,
Messrs. Editors: I became a candidate for Con
gress suddenly, against my own judgment and feel
ing, in consequence of strong solicitations. I have
no t'tste for a canvass, or even lor the seat in Con
gress, if I could obtain it Therefore, injustice to
the great principles at staKe, aim to my pariy, as ,
welt as to myself, I think it is right that I should 1
cease to be a candidate. A thousand thanks to my '
friends every where in the Congressional district; '
but especially to those in my native county, who i
have taken such a lively interest in my behalf. I I
hope and trustsome clover, good, and able democrat
will run, who will enter iuto the canvass with all i
the feelings of his heart, aud who will sustain John
son in his great measure for the national homestead, !
and in those great reforms that he proposes by i
amendments to our federal constitution. I believe '
that his election will secure greater benefits to our 1
State and Union, than auy one that has ever taken j
place in the Stale. Yours, truly, ;
T. Barry. ,
Q7" We suppose the llanner will admit that the
President has made a good move in taking the
Government advertising for Tennessee from the
True Whig and giving it to the Union and Ameri
can. When it sees the administration doing right,
nerc at home, it may safely suppose that it is doing
Virginia Election. The Washington Jjii'cm says
that as far as the districts have beeu heard from, all
the democrats have been elected. Faulkner's ma
jority is near six hundred; and the election of Smith,
Bocock, Millson, and Cakie is considered certain.
We see little reason to doubt that the whole demo
cratic delegation of thirteen will represent the "Old
Dominion" in the next Congress. The vote of the
Suite appears to be unusually small.
Tins Complexion Have thet come at
The whig candidate for Congress in the
11 - t
Richmond, Virginia, District, at a recent public
discussion, said "I am anti-bank, anti-tariff, anti
internal improvement by the General Govern
ment, and anti-distribution of the proceeds of the
public lands." Here we see the whole whig plat
form of by-gone days discarded and blotted out at
one fell swoop, by aman desirous of representing
the heretofore strong federal district of Richmond
fj-rTlie Kenosha Democrat, Wisconsin, says:
"The consolidation of the whig and free-soil
parties in this State into one party, is becoming
more and more obvious everyday. In heart and
sympathy they are already one. Misery loves com
pany, and they have eagerly sought each other's
arms, and are every day growing warm in a mutu
We must tell our Knoxvillc friends that Ker
Boyce, Esq., of Charleston, S. C, has purchased
the lands of B. Rush Montgomery, Esq., in the

We mustn't interfere in the quarrel between
Chattanooga and Knoxvillc;' but we mustsay.that

an 1 oratorical effort jt, was creditable. He said
he had been a whig ever since the origin of the
party in Tcnnesseain 1S35 and G, that he had al
ways been faithful to the Whig party, and claimed
the support of the party on account of -his long
tried'fidelity. He still clings to the last remaining
plank of the old Whig platform Distribution.-
He was in favor of distributing the land itself
amongst the States, as I understood hinuupon the
plan proposed in Mr. Bennett's bill. ' He stated
that the General Government had lost 68 millions
of dollars in its land transactions, and he thought I
it never could be profitable as a source of, revenue
to the Government. He remarked that he was
for the Homestead bill, that his competitor had
figured extensively in connection with it, for which j
he -was ready to accord him high honor, but that
itwas not a Democratic measure. It had origin- j
ated with Mr. Webster in 1850. '
He4next assailed President Pierce for the ap-
pointmcnt of free-soilers to office, and said that
'some of his appointees had the hardihood to sup
portthe Buffalo platform. But he woald not tell us
that'Mr. Webster stated that this whole platform
was Whig thunder, and was filched from- them by
the Barnburners of New York in a most rascally
manner. He said also, that the President had ap
pointed secessionists, at which he held up his hands j
in holy horror. In justice to him I must say he j
taiKeu very pretty aDout tne union, tne .last nope
of liberty, about lashing himself to the old ship of
State and going down with her, and a great many
other pretty things.
Col. Johnson rose to reply, and said he was a
Democrat. He camo not in his own strength but
in that of Democracy; clothed in her simple pan
oply, and armed with truth, he feared not the con
flict, even with the Goliath of his opponents The
respective merits of Generals Scott and Pierce
were not before the people, and he preferred the
discussion of principles connected with the office
of executive of the State. Democracy meant a
government by the people, and while the best ef
forts of religion were directed to the perfection of
man's moral nature, progressive Democracy had for
its object the perfection of his mental faculties ;
that portion of his being which approximates di
vinity. That these two agents of man's renova
tion do not travel in diverging, but in converging
lines. He believed we could improve our system
of government. Glorious as it was, some ofit3
features might yield to amendments, which expe
rience and practice in the affairs of free govern
ments suggested. He desired to amend the Con
stitution of the United States so as to permit the
voters to vote directly for the candidate for Presi
dent without the intervention of electors, so as to
elect United Slates Senators by the people, and to
make the appointment of the Judges of the Su
preme Court of the United States, for a term of
years and not for life.
Some he said would object that any innovation
would give the north an excuse to introduce a pro
vision against slavery, but he said any amendment
lo the Constitution must be ratified by three
fourths of the States, that there were filteon slave
States and sixteen free ones, and California in
feeling with the south.
He maintained that in this the Constitution of
the United States is defective. The progressive
spirit of the age had amended and perhaps im
proved all the State Constitutions. When they
were framed by our revolutionary fathers imperfec
tions crept into them, for the experiment of free
government had just begun. But time had made
their imperfections manifest and a more enlighten
ed wisdom had since corrected them. If imper
fections are found in tho United States Constitu
tion, why not perfect it too 1 Why not popularize
all our institutions ! Progressive democracy does
not stand still and pay reverence to hoary error, but
assiduously labors to make our government the
perfection of reason.
He said when he looked around on the fair faces
present, he was led to exclaim in the fervency of
his heart, God bless woman! for the had taught
him the rudiments of the education which he hsd.
In reply to Maj. Henry's argument upon the
Homestead, he said that it was a democraticmeas-
ure, that he introduced the bill in March, 184G,
' and that when Mr. Webster introduced his rcso
Iution in 1850, the battle had already been fought,
j He had labored without ceasing to bring the sub
i ject before the American people, and before the
J introduction of Mr. Webstkk's resolution they
i had already approved it. He said he had voted against
' Mr. Bennett's bill, which proposed to grant
thirty-one millions of acre3 of land to the States.
The bill provided that the General Government
should issue to the respective States land war
, rants for the number of acres to which each was
, entitled. This, he said, would have brought thirty-
one millions of acres into the market at once,
i Tennessee and the other States would have
I thrown all their warrants into market at once, the j
, supply would greatly have exceeded the demand,
t and the whole would have depreciated to a mere
. nominal sum per cent. Wall Street would then
j have purchased the whole perhaps at 12i cents
per acre, and thus a few public bankers would
have become lords of the public domain, and the
; poor man who desires a home for himself and
; family, would not be able to get it except for an
j exorbitant price. He wanted every poor man to
have a home, that the power of the government
might be secured, and the poor man at the same
time share its choicest blessings,
j In answer to Maj. Henry's position that the
I Government had lost sixty-eight millions of money
by its land transactions, he showed from Mr.
, Stewart's report that it had actually made a
profit of sixty millions. He said he had voted
against the Internal Improvement bill of 1835,
and that lime had not yet made it apparent that
he was wrong. He said that system had been
productive of much good, but he thought its pro
visions not sufficiently guarded. Butifhe was in
error he was certainly in good company. Governor
Campbell and ex-Governor Tkousdale both
voted with him. But he would ask those who
made this objection, how much they cared for Inter
nal Improvement. For his part, he was alwayu
forit. But when he dealt in other peopled money
they would pardon him for exercising what he regarded-
a proper caution. But as a test of his
sincerity he would state that he was a stockholder
in the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad to
the amount of twelve hundred dollars.
He said as to Maj. Henry's objection to Presi
dent Pierce's appointments he had a short an
swer, lie believed all the appointees had sup
ported Mr. Pierce upon the Baltimore Democrat
ic Platform; they had since approved his Inaugural
Address; and he could sec no reason why they
fhould be proscribed after thus recanting the her
etical tenets of their political faith. To act thus
would be to take away one of the great motives to
reformation. He said this course was net without
a distinguished precedent. In 1838, Mr Fill
more had been n free-soiler if not a downright
abolitionist. But while President, he had virtu- 1
ally renounced his errors, come out for -the con-,
stilulion and the laws, and for this, almost the i

He had voted for an appropriation of 500,000 for
the relief of.disabled soldiers of the Mexican war.
If the, country wished to know his course upon
this subject, let them go ask the few survivors of

ly, let them appeal to the orphan. Their several

deed a glorious one, and he wanted no other.
Maj. Hejry, in his reply, said he was opposed
to amending the constitution. He had once been
for the abolition of the veto power, but had found
out he was wrong. He was then in error and his
competitor'was right. But now his competitor
was wrong and he was right. He said he now
lashed himself to it as it is. He said his compet
itor had complained a little abnut tho apportion
ment bi)l of the last Legislature, but that the ra
tio was increased to 90,600, and the misfortune
was that like Falstaff's lebellion. the whig coun
ties of Jefferson and Sevier obstinately lay right
in his competitor's way, and he stumbled over them
in spite of himself.
Mr. Johnson, in his rejoinder, hit the Major
some of the hardest blows imaginable. He said
that in the 1st Congressional district there were
97,000 inhabitants, and in the 2nd but 72,000,
a difference of 25,000. The first had G.500 more
than the ratio, and the second 18,600 less. To
have attached Jefferson county with its population
of 12,000 to the 2d district, would have given it a
population of 84,600, and the 1st would then
have had a population of 84,400, nearly equal.
He supposed that it was deemed necessary to at
tach Jefferson to the 1st district, with its 1700
whig majority, to defeat him. If Jefferson had
been attached to the 2d district, the 1st would still
have had a whig majority of 300; but humble as he
was,this was not deemed sufficient to defeat him. It
thus appeared that in their great anxiety to defeat
him, a large number of voters were virtually dis
franchised. His own immediate constituency
had always sustained him, and he took his appeal
to the State at large. He said Maj. Henry was
once for the abolition of the veto power. No
harm could result from the exercise of this power,
because the President was directly responsible to
tho people, but when it was proposed to amend the
constitution so as to popularize our institutions,
and make all our officers directly responsible to
the people, gentlemen opposed it, and were ready,
with the devotion of martyrs, to la3h themselves
to the constitution. He thought it characteristic.
Upon the whole, it was a glorious day for De
mocracy. Whigs and Democrats united in ap
plauding Johnson's speech and commending his
doctrines. I believe it is settled in the minds of
all, that the Mechanic Statesman will be our next
Fotnrrn District. We are indebted to the Ban
